Electric Zoo – 2013 Guide

Electric Zoo Pic

Labor Day weekend—while some people are packing away their white clothes that are not to be seen again until next Memorial Day, you can enjoy the three day Electric Zoo music festival. Starting on August 30th and continuing through September 1st, the festival features a marathon of electronic music courtesy of headliners Steve Aoki, Diplo, Tiesto, David Guetta, and Dada Life, to name a few. Until then, here’s your comprehensive guide to Electric Zoo 2013.

To celebrate Electric Zoo’s 5th year, there will be five stages, including the two massive main stages. Randall’s Island Park will be hosting more than 130 performers and all concertgoers on 24 acres of land in three days, so say a little prayer for the grass (we don’t want a repeat of Governor’s Ball). You’ll want to bring a blanket or towel for sitting on the grass, wicked shades, sunblock and a poncho so you’re covered if it rains or shines.

If tickets aren’t sold out in advance, they will be available for purchase at the festival grounds box office. Gates open at 11 A.M., and the show ends at 11 P.M. Everyday.

Are there going to be after-parties? Of course, there will be! After-parties and electronic music go together like peanut butter and jelly. We’re here to guide you through the best ones.

If you remember nothing else, remember to bring your dancing shoes.
